And oddly enough I am dealing with a precocious goat. What is a precocious goat? Well, that’s a doe (female) that is not pregnant, and has at least one full udder. Out of nowhere. My goat can’t get pregnant. we have all wethers with her.
We don’t want to loose her ability to produce milk. She’s 4 and well into her weight for baby making, but I have drug my heels about breeding her because I have not been home regularly enough to do 2 daily milkings and care of a brand new baby goat.
This udder situation has fast tracked my search for online goat dating. We can’t get her to a buck with balls (pardon me), so I am here on a friday night, smelling faintly of barnyard as she tried to kick me a lot (she’s never had hands all over her business like tonight). And I am searching for semen:
turns out, there’s a “semen clearinghouse”. Uh huh. I know. snicker giggle and squeak.
I can order whatever I want in a daddy goat. What would I want? well, somebody that’s got the bones of a pack animal…
So, when the hubby gets home, we’ll talk about it. It would be cool to have her milking without babies, but it is super fun to have crazy baby goats running about too…
ok, I got the mastitis test, and she’s positive. So I am on the fix for that. And it turns out I had to have a full registration with the state when purchasing an iodine product. huh, who knew.
